i headed to St. Louis yesterday to spend the day with yan palmer and several other amazing ladies for a crazy-awesome workshop! i have attended a couple workshops put on by the amazing-and-ever-so-talented bobbi+mike. they are the reason i was even brave enough to take my camera out at yan’s workshop yesterday! i have learned so much from bobbi+mike that i was leary of even going anywhere else because i promised myself that i was going to only invest in learning from the most-talented and amazing photographers i could find. i’m two for two! that’s for sure! yesterday was about finding that “thing” back. you sometimes forget “why” you do what you do. it’s normal, according to conversations from the day yesterday. you get busy and things get monotonous and mundane and sometimes you don’t even realize it.
yesterday was good for my soul, which sounds super artsy and not-at-all the way i usually refer to things. today, i don’t care about that. i hope i don’t care about that tomorrow either or the next day. because as i was looking through my images from yesterday, i apparently need to listen to the needs of my soul on a more regular basis. i’m going to do that.
today, i’m thankful and i’m ridiculously proud of these images. there are lots and i’m posting them all. and that’s okay. i’m choosing today to be a little more brave. i’m choosing today to stop being such a rule follower. i’m choosing today to start listening and feeding my soul. in choosing these things, i’m better…at being a photographer and at life. yan and bobbi and mike ~ you’ll never know…thank you!
